Paul Fazakerley, Managing Director of InterBay Asset Finance commented, “InterBay Asset Finance are proud to have won the inaugural AFPA Quiz against very stiff competition from across the asset finance industry. It was closely fought and we are delighted to have won both the Rivermore Trophy and £10,000 for our chosen charity, Depaul, which helps homeless young people. It was an extremely well-organised event and we will definitely be back next year to defend our trophy and would encourage others to submit teams next year to help raise much-needed funds for charity.”

Last night’s AFPA Trust Big Quiz was a close and exciting competition: 22 quiz teams came to win funds for 25 worthy charities – and in the end only two points separated the top three and four points separated the top six. In a thrilling final few rounds, which saw the leaders change several times, Interbay Asset Finance secured an historic win by one point from VIP Apps Consulting and Paragon Bank.
